ReminderWOW!!! 360 registrations already; 280 returning members and 80 new applicants. If you haven't already, be sure that you register before May 31 in order to guarantee your spot for next season because, after the May 31 deadline, teams will be given spots on a first-come basis (i.e. new teams who signed up in May will be given priority over returning teams who sign up after the May 31 deadline).

    So, to anyone who hasn’t registered yet, what reason could you possibly have for not registering? You don’t even need to include payment (unless you want to), so long as payment is made before September 30.

    In order to register, you must first log into your own account; that one you set up last year when you registered. If you’ve forgotten your username or password, click the login button and use the "Forgot Login" link. 

    If you are interrupted during the registration process for any reason, simply restart the process. The system will remember any leagues you have already selected and allow you to continue with your registration. And if, despite your best efforts, the on-line registration process and you just don’t seem to be compatible, give the office a call at 416-284-9251 and we’ll do our best to get you sorted out.

    Cheers everyone,

    Doug 


    Hello Everyone,

    I hope you are all keeping well during this [email protected]#$%^& unusual time. If you’ve been following the countdown clock on the homepage of our website, you’ll know that it’s only a few days before membership registration opens. Translated, this means on-line registration will begin on May 1 for both new and returning members/teams. If you are looking for something new and different to do while sitting at home self-distancing, starting May 1, just visit the Tam website at www.tamheather.ca and select “I was a Member Last Season”.

    Returning teams must register before May 31 in order to guarantee their spot for next season. This is most important for those leagues with limited room for growth. After the May 31 deadline, teams will be given spots on a first-come basis (i.e. new teams who signed up May 1 will be given priority over a returning team who sign up after the May 31 deadline).

    One more important point, registration does not have to include payment, so long as payment is made in full before September 30. Although it would certainly help the Club’s cash flow during the next few months as we face the distinct possibility that our usual sources of summer revenue may all dry up. Asking everyone to pay in May, in addition to being a significant change from prior years, just may not be financially feasible for some in light of the challenges some may be facing as a result of the COVID-19 situation. If you are able to include payment with your registration, it would be much appreciated, but either way, whether you are including payment now or putting it off until later, please be sure to register starting May 1.

    The Tam Heather Board of Directors regrets having to take the extraordinary action of closing the club for play.

     

    Curling

    Curling play is suspended effective March 13 due to the health concerns of COVID-19 and the nature of the transmission of the virus. The only exception will be the Ivan MacDonald bonspiel on Saturday March 14.

    All League Closing banquets have also been postponed until further notice. You will receive further updates in this regard.

     

    Tennis

    Effective 11:00pm tonight, Saturday Mar 14, tennis play was suspended until April 5th, at which time the impact of the COVID-19 VIRUS was to be reviewed to determine whether or not tennis should be resumed. Due to the continued necessity for social distancing, tennis play has now been suspended until further notice.

     

    Tam Heather Board of Directors


    With the recent news and events worldwide in association with the CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19), the Tam Heather Curling & Tennis Club encourages all Members to be proactive with the following prevention practices:

    • Abstain from customary handshakes pre/post game. We suggest elbow bumping or a nod or use other forms of non-contact greetings.
    • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and running water.
    • Bring your own personal hand sanitizer to use. Lysol/Clorox wipes are also a good idea to wipe down rock handles. Unfortunately with all the hoarding/stockpiling that is happening, the Club’s suppliers are currently out of stock of hand sanitizer and wipes. The Club only has hand sanitizer available in the handicap and downstairs washrooms and at both ends of the tennis dome.
    • Cover your cough. When coughing or sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with flexed elbow or use a tissue. Then dispose of tissue immediately.
    • Avoid touching your face.

    Stay home if you are feeling sick or have any symptoms associated with the virus.

    Toronto Ladies Summer League Division A3

    3:00 - 4:00pm

    ALL LEAGUES LOOKING FOR PLAYERS!!!

    Please refer to the OTA Player Rating Scale posted in the Vestibule

    All tennis members interested in trying out for a team or league at Tam Heather Curling &Tennis Club must attend tryouts. If you are unavailable to attend tryouts on the date posted, you must contact the team captain or league coordinator at least 3 weeks before the tryout date to arrange another tryout date.

    (ALL TRYOUTS WILL BE ASSESSED BY CLUB COACHES)


    game boardAre you looking for a tennis game? We can help!

    Tam Heather has introduced an electronic bulletin board where you can post your availability to play and reach out to others who would also like to play.

    To view the game board, log into the Tam website and navigate to Tennis Info > Game Board.

    You can also edit your availability from this page as well as send emails.


    In air supported structures such as ours, the front door doesn't always close for a variety of reasons. When it doesn't close, an alarm sounds. We are looking at various mechanical changes/fixes that we can make to ensure the door closes properly. In the meantime though, to prevent these alarms, please be sure to always close the door behind you upon entering or exiting the dome. Your help is appreciated.

    Cheers,

    1578484383981 Grand Slam of Curling Players Championship 2020 TCA Challenge Poster 18x24 v2If you’ve been following our blog on the Tam website, you’ll have read about the promotion that the TCA is running in conjunction with the upcoming Players Championship at the Mattamy Centre April 7 to 12. And even if you haven’t noticed it on our blog, you must have wondered why Emma Miskew is constantly standing outside our club office entrance.

    Tam Heather members should use the code TCATAM to purchase tickets to the Players' Championship in April. The club with the most tickets purchased will get a sheet of ice at Mattamy Centre (old Maple Leaf Gardens) to play a game.

    • Join the Princess Auto TCA Challenge by purchasing tickets to the 2020 Princess Auto Players’ Championship!
    • Enter promo code TCATAM when buying tickets and your team could be playing its final on Grand Slam Ice!
    • Five TCA Clubs will win a chance to play their final at Mattamy Athletic Centre following the Friday night draw of the 2020 Princess Auto Players’ Championship at Mattamy Athletic Centre (April 10th)
    • As a thank you to the TCA, Princess Auto will donate $10,000 to the TCA and Junior Curling in support of growing the game

    And as an additional thank you for participating, each club is receiving a pair of all-event passes. In past years, we’ve given one lucky winner the tickets to all 19 games; but not this year. This year we’re going to spread out the fun by drawing 19 names.

    So, our first lucky winner of 2 tickets to the 7:00pm draw on Tuesday April 7 is Terry Sedor. Congratulations!!!!

    Stay tuned, we’ll be drawing names for the rest of the tickets later this week.

    Club Information

    Tam Heather, or the “Tam” as we call it, is an active friendly club located in the Morningside and 401 community of Scarborough. Tam Heather opened in 1973 as a curling club with eight sheets of ice, then two years later in 1975, the club expanded by adding five tennis courts, three of which were covered in the winter with a bubble. Thirty four years later, in 2009, a four court year-round covered structure was built.
